Packers Vs. Bears: Score Holds At 14-0 Heading Into Halftime

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears both had chances to score in the last two minutes of the NFC Championship Game’s first half. But a pair of interceptions killed what might’ve been. One of them was super nuts crazy, as a low Aaron Rodgers pass bounced off Donald Driver’s feet and into Lance Briggs’ hands. Why do footballs that come into contact with feet always end up picked off?

Packers DB Sam Shields made up for Driver’s misstep, picking off a Jay Cutler lob to essentially end the half. On the Bears’ previous drive Shields strip-sacked Cutler — the rookie has been all over the place today.

Chicago is very lucky to only be down by two touchdowns. The Packers have outgained them by 142 yards, and any talk about Chicago’s defense being able to defend Green Bay better than Philadelphia’s or Atlanta’s did has been proven misguided. Rodgers is up to 211 total yards, Green Bay’s defense is battering Cutler on every drive, and the Packers’ running game has already gone over 100 on the day.
